    Hey, help the economy, buy one of each!!! Just like bikes- you can't have to many. F.W.I.W.

    I think you can mail it to your local pd as well.

    That's exactly what I'm worried about.

    Not too concerned about getting back to the PD. Just go to the end of the block, turn left and walk across the park...

    Tim: Alot of the gun shops up here have ranges and will let you shoot before you buy, just a thought.

    Spoke with a few more people, and they all agree a subcompact .40 is a good choice for PP, but they're a bitch to shoot regularly at the range. One guy said that after a few magazines it started to hurt.

    I'm still up in the air. Reloading my own ammo allows me to run very light loads for practice and plinking, and just use a heavier load for PP. It might come down to something as simple as brass availability, still hearing .380 is expensive and hard to come by.

    Well, that was easy. Went in and poked around, spotted a Walther PPK/S in Stainless. No brainer, love it.
